Think before you drink!

Be mindful of beverages loaded with caloric ingredients like sugar, corn syrup, fructose, milk, cream, syrup, special flavoring, and even fruit juice. If you're watching your weight, you are better off eating fruit versus drinking it. Did you know that flavored water, vitamin water and sports drinks all have added calories? When it comes to managing your weight, calorie-free water will always be your best bet. Pay careful attention to serving sizes also. Many bottled products are two or more servings, not one. Watch out for alcohol when dieting. Alcohol and nutrition are closely linked. Over consumption of alcohol can lead to nutrient deficiencies, weight gain, and chronic diseases such as liver disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and coronary heart disease. If you drink alcoholic beverages do so in moderation. No more than one drink a day for women. No more than two drinks a day for men. Trim 500 liquid calories from your daily diet and you'll save 3,500 calories a week and lose a pound. Just 500 extra calories per day will add up to one pound per week potential weight gain.

Have a blessed day!

drinks can be so scary can't they ......... suddenly you can find that what was just an extra to food is piling on nearly as many calories as the main meal itself all hidden in a nice drink - sometimes even a supposedly "healthy" one
